Customer Question
I just acquired a...

I just acquired a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe that has a minor fender bender and deployed the airbags. I am looking for replacement airbags and related systems and info on how to replace them.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, how fast were you going and what did you hit?

Not me. I bought the car in it's current state

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Santa Fe yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am restoring the vehicle

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I will be replacing the steering wheel bag and complete dash and bezel

did either of the front seat belt pretensioners blow?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
That is unknown. How would I find that out?
Hyundai Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER replied 1 month ago

both front seats have pretensioners in them, when the airbags deploy, it fires the pretensioners and locks them solid, check to see if both seat belts come out and retract,Tim

Will check. In either case, what needs to be done?
Hyundai Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER replied 1 month ago

if they are free, then you dont have to replace them, if either is locked, you will need to replace that one, and along with the blown airbags that went off, you will need to have the AIRBAG module reset or replaced, once they fire, they wont work until this is done,Tim
